Traveling the Blue Ridge Parkway we went looking for lunch and fortunately stumbled on the Purple Foot. It has a most interesting assortment of food, with a bit of a German influence; my wife had a great panini and I had a wonderful crepe. There was free wifi access which was a nice plus. In addition to indoor seating there... More

You can grab a healthier option here. Their hours are limited so check before you go (not your typical restaurant hours) Menu has a good selection, they take your order at the register and bring you your food which is a bit odd but works for them. Can't tell from the outside but they have a nice patio to each... More

After a frantic weekend at my alumni meeting, I introduced my lady to The Purple Foot. She had the quiche and I had one of my favorites, Reuben Pita to Pay Paul. Despite the fact the dining room was crowded and the patio was closed by the weather, service was very quick. We both enjoyed our selections. I can't stress... More

Determined to avoid fast food restaurants on our latest trip we did research on Tripadvisor for places along the way from Atlanta to DC. Not far off Interstate 81 is Waynesboro, VA and the Purple Foot restaurant (maybe 10 mins at most). Easy to find and see - it's purple. Like others have mentioned it's only opened for lunch but...

I've had lunch twice at the Purple Foot. A neat place with al fresco dining, weather permitting. Great sandwiches with quirky names ...not so large you can't eat them. The outside patio is preferred seating... very secluded and relaxing. I don't know about other meals, but lunch is fun.

Inside this seemingly small purple building is a fun restaurant. It is spotlessly clean, solid food, friendly staff and a cool, intimate and beautifully landscaped outside spot in the back. A real find!

The Purple Foot began as a wine shop back when most of Waynesboro thought "wine" was what a hungry baby did. It has since morphed into a lunch/light dinner restaurant. It features soup, salad, and sandwiches, many of which have a cute, punny name - like the "Pita Rabbit." Service may be a bit slow, but food and prices are... More

A neat little getaway, with a beautiful outdoor garden. A nice variety of sandwiches, salads, and specialty dishes. If you are wine lover, there is a gift shop that has a wide variety of wine and wine related gifts for sale. A really unique spot, and worth a try.
